    I do not think I can make this one. Not sure when I return home from LeMans, so have no clue in what state my body will be in :p :p

    I wish I could have gone too, but I have no ride this year. :cry:
    I hope you guys have a good trip and have a great race to watch, looking forward to the race report. ;) No presure here!!! ;)
     
  5. Me too- let's hope we have more than 2 show up this week! these cars are fun once you dial them in. I posted a decent base setup in the setups section. You can use it for a base for the Mid-O set, these cars don't have a lot of setup options. Give them a chance, they grow on you.
     
  6. I am new to rfactor 2 racing and this looks like fun as I enjoy this track, so this may sound silly but where can I download the Maserati so I can test with it.

    Also what kind of lap times are you guys hitting?

    Welcome to rFactor2 Michael! A great buy! :thumbsup:

    The Maserati's can be found here: http://www.racedepartment.com/forum/threads/maserati-trofeo-granturismo-mc-series.50597/

    Lap times with these cars? Hmmmm.... not really sure yet. Did a few laps last monday night and was hitting 1:29's, but the setup wasn't ready yet and it was for me the first time to drive these cars. The time to aim for will be around 1:26's I would say and I am no alien. :alien:

    Edit: the times are the track WITH the chicane. :)

    Michael, if you need any help with installing the mod, just ask here at the rF2 forum and there is always someone to help you out. :) Maybe I can even help you if I know what the problem is. :)

    I did a few more laps in Mid Ohio with Chicane and did a high 1:25. I used my Palm Beach setup, which can be found in the rF2 setup forum. :)

    Server is up! Mind the start procedure ;) It's a formation lap, followed by a standing start!

  13. I got the mod working and did a quick test run. I only managed a 1:29.5, with that in mind I will pull my interest for this race.

    I will however keep practicing and keep an eye out for future events.

    Don't let your lap times ever put you off from joining an event. My times are around 1.28/1.29 and there's still a few days until the race. Also use low fuel and get the AI to rubber in the track and that wil get your times down. I'm sure someone will give you a better setup on race day as well.

    Don't forget it's all about the fun and participation and we are all at different level of skill.

  15. Oh, ok. Thats made me a lot more interested in this again.

    As long as there is someone I can compete with I am happy. So keep me in.

    I have never driven the Maserati befor but it seems to be fum. I was hitting 1.24.5 after the first 10 laps in the car WITH the chicane, but I can,t make it on monday :-( But I think you can get in the 1.22s with a good setup
     
  17. The server is running build 85 methinks. I can't join, getting wrong version error

    Yes its the old build. I am not sure if the current mod will still work with the new build, hence i am not going to update the servers.

    Marco is at Le Mans this weekend and as he is our resident expert I rather wait for his advise what to do :)

    I also have updated to build 90, and cannot connect to
    the server. :( Might not be able to join the race. If Marco comes home early and is fresh enough to update the server I'll be in it. :)

    Enough with the fast lap times, it's only going to put people off :)
